Here's a heartwarming story for you: nine-year-old Caine Monroy, who created his own cardboard arcade, called Caine's Arcade, over the span of a year out of boxes in his dad's auto part store has been given the chance for a bright future thanks to Los Angeles filmmaker Nirvan Mullick.

"About a month ago, I went to East LA to score a used door handle for my '96 Corolla. I pulled into a used auto parts store on Mission, and stumbled across a mysterious cardboard arcade built by a 9 year old kid named Caine," said Mullick via a post on Reddit. "He had used boxes from his dad's store to build it, and had also set up a cardboard display of prizes you could win."

"I started asking Caine about his games. He explained that for $1 I could get 4 turns, or for $2 I could get a Fun Pass and 500 turns. I got the fun pass." he said.

After learning more about the Arcade and Caine, Mullick went on to create a heartwarming film about Caine's Arcade and even went so far as to organize a flashmob to surprise the boy. Check out the full film below.


The film and the story itself got so much attention that Mullick went on to create a scholarship fund for Caine, saying, "Imagine what this kid could build with an Engineering degree!" Mullick's original goal of $25k for the fund was easily surpassed, and now he's trying to raise $100k to pay for all four years of Caine's college education. As of this writing they've raised a whopping $86k! You can donate over on the Caine's Arcade website.
